Letter from the United Nations Committee against Torture to the Republic of Senegal

The United Nations Committee against Torture has called on Senegal to comply with its “obligation” to prosecute or extradite Chad's exiled former dictator, Hissène Habré. The Committee’s action came in response to a statement by President Abdoulaye Wade of Senegal that he had “had enough” of the Habré case and was “going to get rid of him.”
